Brandon Doyle has a passion for technology. The Maple Grove real estate agent attended the Consumer Electronics Show, held virtually for the first time in its 54-year history. Doyle says smart home technology will continue to change the way we live.

For nine years he has been working with a piece of technology better known for computer games, in particular the smash-hit Fortnite.

The Unreal Engine, owned by Epic Games, provides the building blocks and tools that a computer game developer needs, but is increasingly an attractive technology for TV and film producers.

The latest version of technology, Unreal Engine 5, is coming out next year, and Epic has been heavily trailing its features.

It should allow visual effects artists like Mr Libreri to slot graphics and images straight into a scene, with little fuss.
